Laurel Hardware Ratings and Reviews
We had a great time. Seated immediately and stayed for hours as we enjoyed the food and multiple cocktails and wine. Attentive server. Very attentive helpers. The cold food was cold and the hot food was hot. Big crowd that night but we enjoyed the atmosphere the food was tasty and the service was at a pace that was just what we wanted.
WONDERFUL ENVIRONMENT. HOSTESS WHO SAT US WAS A BIT ROOD AND ALOOF. WASN'T VERY HELPFUL WHEN WE ASKED TO BE SEATED OFF TO THE SIDE INSTEAD OF JAMMED BETWEEN TWO OTHER COUPLES. OTHERWISE EVERYTHING WAS QUITE LOVELY. WONDERFUL SERVER AND THE FOOD CAME OUT PROMPTLY AFTER WE ORDERED. BEAUTIFUL OUTDOOR PATIO. FOOD WAS DELICIOUS.
I love this place, but it's very hard to have diner or lunch at this place... Chairs are too low and tables are really small... People were cool and nice. I would say the global service was good. But a woman at the front wasn't nice. Just one person could break the ambiance. Too bad.
Big changes from my last visit. They have a mezcal room now! Laurel Hardware is still popular however it felt a little long in the tooth. No longer buzzing but it's still busy. The food is great. The drink options are voluminous and make you dizzy. I still love it...
While the food is indeed creative and deliciously prepared, the service REALLY sucks. Evident lack of training, uneducated server and busboy who just drop the dish on the table like we were animals . . . waitress keep forgetting what we order. . . This was a birthday dinner and I was so happy to invite my friend - the restaurant was noticed - One person was served and we had to wait another 15 min (FIFTEEN) before the second person receive the food . . that was served again with this mannerless form. We will return . . ? I don't think so. Which is sad because the patio is agreeable
I live just around the corner. I was there during their first weekend they were open and go about 1-2 times a year. Food is always excellent. Was very excited to try the new mezcal bar! It has an amazing vibe. We had the mezcal flight, an old fashioned and the guacamole. Everything was TOP NOTCH. Seriously the best guac I've ever had with piping hot fresh chips. Once we were seated in the outdoor patio, we feasted on the duck fried rice and the ricotta tortellini (odd combo but both sounded amazing). DELICIOUS. Our waitress was lovely. I think her name was Parry or Piper. Blond gal. Super friendly and so helpful with our menu choices.
However, the service overall was kind of crummy. The gal in the mezcal bar could NOT be bothered to smile, offer up information, or even bless us with eye contact through her 1980s vintage frames. I actually had to say to her after our order "did you hear me?" When you're spending $80 on pre-dinner drinks, would be nice to be treated as a fellow human. The super good looking guy who escorted us to our table was similarly stone-faced. I told him that the guac was the best we'd ever had. He said "oh." Thanks, buddy.
Laurel Hardware, you are pretty great but you're not THAT cool. Friendly service will never go out of style. So stay in style, ok?
I'm from out of town. I visited 2 days in a row, it was so good I had to come back. A little loud when full and the music is up, but that is my only complaint; I guess I'm getting old. I like the smaller sizes, shared portions, and the staff is very attentive, without intruding on table talk. Food quality was top drawer.
I got there late .. past 11:00 pm on a Monday night, and was surprised to learn that the patio was closed to seating. Moreover, the kitchen was also closed. To top it, they had zero snacks to munch on with drinks. So, drinks with zero snacks, sitting on the bar stools, drinking.
Not my fault for showing up late. At least they could have offered us something to munch on after asking them, but no.
But, wait, there was a persistent mosquito buzzing around me, and I smacked it dead when it landed on my arm.
But wait, even more, the bartender switched my friend's second round drink from a Glenmorangie original to a different version of a Glenmorangie, and had to switch it as soon as my friend took his first sip from his second drink.
Not exactly a first good impression, I was embarrassed in front of my friend.
We went to AstroBurgers across the street later to feed ourselves.
Our waitress was amazing, but the hostess was very rude And would not let us sit side by side at an empty table for 14. She made us sit across from each other claiming a large party was arriving. I told we we would move once the party arrived, but she made a big deal about it. We finished our meal, had another drink, and NO ONE was ever seated at the enormous table. We even went to the bar and hung out just to see when the large party would arrive (also the second table for 14 was also empty). They never came and we left with a bad taste for this restaurant because of her.
Love that the sign is still for hardware store...Greeted by friendly hostess...offered choice of sitting inside or outside...we chose outdoors...lovely outdoor seating, however, had to change tables as chairs were too low for table...sat at a high top table...would have preferred regular table, but..... our server was pleasant and food was dee-lish!
My experience at Laurel Hardware was pretty amazing. I was 10 minutes early for my reservation on a Saturday night but the manager/hostess made no issue with it and sat me right away, even with an incomplete party. They accommodated my request in the beautiful back patio and service was rather quick, in a span of 5-10 mins I was offered water and cocktails. I've read many reviews about the service here, but I can assure you our server that night (Alex) was charming, attentive, and polite. I would even say that was one of the best service I've received at a place of this category. Food and drinks were A+ as well and enjoyed everything. It's a see and be seen place, but just relax and enjoy yourself!
I came back Sunday night with a date and it was more lounge-like but still a great place to relax and enjoy a drink.
I was kind of mixed about this place. For example, the food was really good (on the whole), but small portions. Also, it's the never ending LA story of 'sharing plates' which I think is just a scam. I mean if you're paying $25 for a plate of something it should fill you up. The service was good and the ambiance was particular. Extremely loud, so not the place for quiet conversation/romance by any means. Go with a group or maybe more of a bar place.
I've been wanting to go here since I moved to LA from Seattle and was not disappointed! The food was priced well for the portion size. The drinks were also really delicious (I have the Gangster). The waitstaff was beautiful and friendly. I highly recommend sitting on the outdoor patio, the setting was very relaxing.
I hadn't been in nearly a year so was very much looking forward to it. Service was fine up until we received our food. I'd ordered the duck rice which come with a sunny side up egg and has cilantro (which I consider a very mild spice). An Expediter service our food and when I cut into the egg on top of the rice, I realized the yolk was hard cooked, not runny as it should be with that particular dish. We flagged a busboy and asked him to send our Server over. I requested another egg and sent back the hard cooked egg I'd received, which she was completely fine with. I waited for the egg to eat my dish. No big deal. When the new egg arrive it was a also a little over cooked (not runny), but at this point I very hungry and just went for it. Unfortunately, there was a spice in the dish that made it too spicy for me (it was not the cilantro, which I eat all the time.. including making Cilantro Pesto). I wanted to order another dish (happy to pay for the first one too as it was my issue), but the Waitress never came back to our table.. never checked on us.. never asked if we wanted another drink or coffee, etc. I literally had only three bites of my meal and as my nose started to run and my mouth was on fire I stopped eating. I got up to go to the bathroom for a tissue and as I returned, the Busboy cleared my plate and that of my friends, stacking one of theirs on mine. We were all surprised at the speed that happened.. we'd hoped to see our Waitress so I could order something else... It would have also been nice if the Busboy had asked if we wanted my food boxed to take with us, since it was hardly touched. To be frank, I was so annoyed (really, just "hangry"), that when the Waitress finally came by to see if we wanted dessert .. didn't ask how everything was... i just wanted to leave.
I've been there several times over for dinner, drinks, etc, as have my friends (independent of me). We were all so disappointed, we've now checked it off our "List".
Our waitress was fantastic, but I was a little disappointed when I requested seating on the patio, and we were instead seated at the end of a communal table inside. It was just my friend and me in our party, but we were seated with nine other women who were clearly celebrating a special occasion.
